Hi and welcome to the forum.....well it seams this ant your first rodeo so you know the drill.....what are you going to do different this time around to stay clean????....the real key here is something we call aftercare it is a critical step once your done with your detox..... there are many forms of it to choose from and all have the same thing in common a support system and seeking outside help....the only way to do this wrong is trying to do it alone....for some talking with the pastor of your local church is enough for others it is a addiction therapist or a substance abuse counselor for others a 12 step progam like A/A or N/A is the ticket....I have tried all the above and all kept me clean but I did not see growth and recovery until I joined N/A...the thing here is your still stuck with the addict in your head long after the pillls stop....the behaviors the compulsions and obsessions drive us back over and over again...it is a viscous cycle that takes work to break....N/A treats the addict and all of the above it is free the meetings are only a hour long and with time and working the steps you will loose the very desire to use....this is the only progam that can do that for you....I thought it was all but impossible to loose the very desire that kept driving me back over and over again....it is something I thought I would have to deal with the rest of my life after 35yrs of abuse....I cannot speak more highly of the progam it will truly set you free so give it a try....google a N/A meeting near you and go....you wont regret it.....this is a deadly disease that ends in jail institutions or death feel free to ask questions if you have any those that go to meetings regularly tend to stay clean....keep posting for support...>>>>>>>>>>Gnarly<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
The "golden ticket" is NA or AA. If we could do this alone, we would have by now. I did what you did, trying so hard to twist my brain into figuring it out but always ended up in the same place, using again. Wish you luck.
hi ht i agree, i relapsed many times because i was a few months clean and i thought i was 'doing better' and i forgot what it was like to detox and go through recovery. i go to NA and AA ... it has been great ... i hate asking for help but when i do the returns are enormous. i hope you give aftercare a try. good for you for getting up and trying again! hope you stick around
